This is a delicious soup for the upcoming cold season. There isn't another one like it on the site. The amount of sugar needed depends upon one's individual taste. But start out using 1 tablespoon and adding until the tartness is gone. You can add half and half, however creamy you like your soup, but it's not necessary, it's delicious with or without the milk.
I know, there are 310 different banana muffin recipes here at zaar! And I looked through most of them, but didn't see one like this. I make these all the time and take them to work. They're gone in a flash!!!
This comes from Paula Deen. It is absolutely wonderful especially if you like French Onion Soup. Make sure you use heavy duty aluminum foil and if you make these on the outdoor grill, double the foil because you do not want to loose any of the delicious broth.
When I had my liver transplant in Denver, CO there was a Gunther Toody's Diner across the street from the hotel where I stayed. There was a Black Bean Soup on the menu that I just loved. After coming home to Oklahoma, I have searched, in vain, for a Black Bean Soup that came even close to what the diner served. I finally searched recipes and have come up with my version that best copies Gunther Toody's.
